Really enjoyed and would highly recommend the train ride and the Skyrail. Disappointed with Butterfly enclosure. Last time we were there we saw very big colourful butterflies- not this time. Army duck-saw no creatures. Did learn a little about the rainforest vegetation. We visited on a Monday, very few shops open and by 2.00 pm most food outlets closed.
The scenic rail trip was enjoyable. Too much time between rail trip and army duck. Army duck was average - did a circle of a lagoon. Unfortunately issue with sky rail and trip back was delayed preventing us due to time restraint from hopping off on way down and having a look at falls. All Information provided on the day about the area and history was great.
This was such a great day and tour in Kuranda. We saw the best of everything all in a day. The railway was great, the skyway view was incredible, the aboriginal demonstrations were fantastic and the zoo interactions was unreal. We were able to touch a koala and feed kangaroo!!
We were picked up at our B&B and taken to the train station where we rode the Scenic Railway with a stop at Barron Falls. Scenery all along the way was beautiful and once we arrived at Kuranda we spent some fascinating time at the Butterfly Sanctuary. We then went on the duck boat ride through the rainforest area. Following that we went to an aboriginal dance performance and then we were introduced to the traditional boomerang and each of us were given a chance to try throwing it after a lesson. We had the buffet lunch which was optional and very good. Following the performance we went to the Wildlife Area where we saw a nice collection of Australian creatures. The day ended with The Skyrail gondolas going back down the mountain to across from the railway station.
We don't normally do day trips, but felt this would be an exception We booked the train, DUKW tour and Sky Rail. Picked up from the hotel by a friendly and helpful driver and transported to the Kuranda Railway station. Nice little cafe for breakfast. Allocated seats but after the first mile one of the onboard staff came and led us to an empty carriage with window seats. Spectacular views and informative commentary. Onboard staff were excellent. There were options on arrival to visit the Butterfly Sanctuary and a BBQ with aboriginal dancing. We went to the pub and ate pies. DUKW tour was educational. Once again great staff and commentary. Sky Rail down once again provided spectacular views. Ok, so we enjoyed it. There was a fair bit of hanging about. We went on an organised trip so kind of expected it. This was clearly designed to gain revenue. We knew that and frankly didn't care. There was no pressure to buy anything in the village. Loads of tourist type stuff. You could probably book everything yourself if you had transport, we just took the easier option.
I enjoyed the activities but not all the wasted time between. We were picked up more than an hour early from our hotel. Waited 45 minutes for the train. Downtime before the Duck Tour was almost 2 hours in a small village with only local craft shops. Another break after the Duck Tour, and then time wasted waiting for a bus after the Sky Rail. I wish I had arranged the attractions myself and saved the several hours time lost for another adventure.
